Intense, fruity and aromatic, Ruinart Rosé owes its sensual elegance to the marriage of Chardonnay (45%), mainly from the Chardonnay Premiers Crus of the Côte des Blancs, and Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims and Vallée de la Marne. The nose is fresh and subtle, ripe with cherry and freshly picked red berries followed by a splash of flowers and spicy notes. On the palate the wine is silky and delicately fleshy.
Ruinart Rosé embodies the refined expression of the Ruinart Taste.

The NV Brut Rosé is a pretty, understated wine graced with notable class and finesse. This is a decidedly feminine, delicate style best suited to drinking as an aperitif. Sweet berries, flowers and spices are layered into the refined, well-articulated finish.

- 20 to 25% coming from wines reserved from the 2 previous years.
- 45% of the Chardonnay is from the Côte des Blancs and Montagne de Reims vineyards
- 55% of the Pinot Noir is from the Montagne de Reims and the Vallée de la Marne vineyards,
- 18 to 19% of which has been made into red wine
The colour is a delicate pomegranate pink with very slightly orange reflections. The sparkling, light effervescence has a persistent foam.
The nose is subtle and fresh, first offering an original palette of tropical fruits (guava and lychee) and small berries (raspberries, cherries and wild strawberries) in the first instance. These are followed by rose and pomegranate notes which complete the complex, intense aromatic profile, dominated by somewhat undeveloped primary aromas.
On the palate the attack is distinct and full, cradled by a gentle effervescence. The aromas of freshly picked berries are fully expressed. The balance brings together a delightful freshness and voluptuous body, expressed by an elegant bracing touch of mint and pink grapefruit.
